How can we make corn ethanol more eco friendly?

    The main issues with ethanol production involve the energy required to power the farm machinery and distillation process, the amount of water involved in growing and harvesting the crop, and the fertilizer involved.  We could “green up” this process by using renewable energy such as wind or solar to power the distilleries.  Similarly, hybrid tractors and farm equipment would be effective in reducing the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted in this process, as well as the amount of fuel consumed.
